Jessica Andrade vs. Marina Rodriguez booked for UFC 300

Jessica Andrade has booked her first fight of 2024.

The former UFC strawweight champion is scheduled to take on top contender Marina Rodriguez on April 13 at UFC 300 in Las Vegas. The bout will be contested at 115 pounds.

The UFC announced the matchup Friday afternoon.

This marks Andrade’s first fight bout of the year after a busy 2023 in which she fought five times, going 2-3. She last competed in November at UFC 295 where she stopped Mackenzie Dern in the second round. She won a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus for her knockout. Prior to that, Andrade (25-12 MMA, 16-10 UFC) had consecutive losses to Tatiana Suarez, Yan Xiaonan and Erin Blanchfield.

Rodriguez (17-3-2 MMA, 7-3-2 UFC) looks to build off her TKO win over Michelle Waterson-Gomez back in September. The win snapped a two-fight losing streak for the Brazilian.
